  • File format export lists every format

    I was experimenting with setting up Cirrus to use the HTML Tidy and XML Tidy formats that are available for BC2.

    The BC2 definition wouldn't export (fair enough) so I copied the buiolt-in HTMM and XML definitions then added the conversion callout.

    When I exported just my two new formats to an XML file I was surprised to see the file listed every format on my system. The selected ones had content, the rest looked like this:

    Code:
      <TDataFormat Value="Data Files">
        <Deleted Value="True" />
      </TDataFormat>
      <TDataFormat Value="MS Excel Spreadsheets">
        <Deleted Value="True" />
      </TDataFormat>
    ...
    What's the reason for these sections? I might not want to reveal to everyone that I have lots of other formats I'm not giving them.

    Currently, exported FileFormats.xml has the same structure as the regular one. The "extra" items you are seeing are there because they are built-in formats you explicity deleted. The exported file will not contain user defined formats unless you choose to export them.

      By "explicitly deleted" I assume you mean the ones I unchecked during the export procedure, right?

        Yes, the built-in file formats you uncheck during the export are considered deleted. Also, this applies to built-in file formats you delete in the "File Formats" dialog.

          Any chance you could share that export file? I just spent a little time trying to get XML Tidy working with Cirrus and I couldn't figure it out.
